Earlier this Summer, Footaction announced a collaboration with rapper ScHoolboy Q to produce a one-of-a-kind remix music video for his single “Man Of The Year”. The collaboration involved our community on social media—using platforms like Instagram and Vine submitting their stories to be a part of the project. The subject matter was simple: showing off your summer style and the way you #OwnIt. After seeing all of the submissions that came in, the video was sure to be a hit. Your clips were sifted through by ScHoolboy Q himself, so watch the video above and see if your submission made the cut.

Continuing the Year of the Horse theme, Nike unveils the Kobe Venomenon 4 outfitted in gym red, bright citron and light crimson. Ready for the court and the street alike, a “Year of the Horse” graphic is seen on the heel of the Venomenon 4. For additional specs, the Nike Zoom cushioning pairs with Hyperfuse and Flywire on the upper to create the latest technology in the Venomenon line.
Available online only on Wednesday.
The Nike Year Of The Horse (Nike Kobe NSW “YOTH” and Nike Flight Exposed “YOTH”) are in stores now, to coincide with the Year of the Horse in the Lunar New Year; an annual celebration unrivaled in Chinese culture. With the fresh start, it’s a chance to both reflect and celebrate.
The collections is inspired by the strength and symbolism of the horse, as the Nike Kobe 9 NSW Lifestyle differs from the rest of the pack in its usage of pony hair across the upper. That material seems like a no-brainer as far as the “YOTH” theme is concerned, but Nike has for the most part ignored it-presumably wanting to ignore any sort of convention or expectations people may have had surrounding the set. The Nike Air Flightposite Exposed features a horse-in-motion graphic across the upper along with the implantation of the traditional Chinese character “ma” meaning horse.
Available in stores now.
